187. You consider discontinuing slinging once your favorite sling is destroyed.

188. You can't perfectly replicate your favorite sling, some things just can't be remade.


slinging has never been the same since i lost my best friend

122)You can braid, weave, sew, and knit better than most old ladies.

123) You listed "slinging" as one of your hobbies/activities for the school yearbook. (true story)



So, just to show you how inhistorical our culture is and how little knowledge they have on slinging, I got my yearbook back today and after listings of interest as "Martial arts, tactical shooting, Primitive archery" is then followed by "singing" because they thought "slinging" was a typo.

My reaction was somthing like  Huh  Angry  Tongue  and then back to  Smiley as I realized my interests' including singing were still much cooler than the interest of the others in my grade.

It's good reading over this thread too.

192) when a friend asks you to make a sling and it turns out better than your old one, you give him the old one...
193) when you get asked why you are stuffing stones in your pocket
194) when you get defensive when someone wants to see one of the stones
195) when get enraged by the improper use of an egg shaped rock

...you continually come up with new uses for your sling, the one you always carry with you. Necessity certainly is the mother of innovation. Forgot my car mount last week when I was out of town.

So true, I was at the beach last week and I used my sling as a belt to hold my knife (RAT 5).

You might be a slinger if for a split second, you realize you don't know how to throw a ball by hand anymore.

You pick up all sorts of "trash" to turn into targets.
You have sling targets lying around everywhere. Even though you will never be able to use them all up.
You end friendships with people who say slinging is useless.

You are invited to Madame Zingara, a REALLY posh event where the rich and upmarket people go. You take your sling with. You find a way of smuggling it past casino security. While you are standing at the bar you realize there are 1000's of perfectly round,white pebbles lying around as decoration. You spend half of the show (including the parts of the show that feature a female contortionist and a knockout of a woman in a body sock dancing in a bath full of water from 5m away) working how you would have hit the 1.2m wide clockface, 25m high on the clocktower from 35m away

1) If you have ever used a sling as a fish stringer or dog leash because it was all you had on hand.
2) If you have ever used your sling to tie a sock to your bleeding head after a "boomarang" slingstone gives you a concusion.
3) If you want written in your uelogy "Well at least he threw alot of rocks"

You spend more time at the triple jump/long jump pit wondering if you can sling a stone directly at your coach 74'6 feet away (not that I would).
